, too, andrea, over the weekend while colin powell was out talking about a defense of hagel for a cabinet post, senator corker was appearing elsewhere and giving a different type of interpretation. take a listen. >> i think another thing, george is going to come up is just his overall temperament. and is he suited to run a department or a big agency or a big entity like the pentagon. >> andrea, has senator corker's office or those around him explained what he was getting at there by the temperament phrasing? >> well, in fact, this has sort of lit up the e-mailing and texting around town here because the pro-hagel group, the people supporting him, former staff members, are asking, you know, what was he talking about because he did not get along well with some of his republican colleagues, he's known to have sort of sharp elbows but he's hardly the only senator who is known to be a little prickly at times. so people really don't understand is this a new -- was senator corker previewing a new line of attack against the hagel nomination where they're going to try to get to his t
